The apostle Paul, with great knowledge of Scripture, said in Philippians 3:7–8: “But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ.” (NASB)

It takes a courageous person to take a second look—to lay down their life—just as the apostle Paul. Are you willing to take a second look, to lay down your life? The Portrait of a Christian was written to help you do so.

For more than thirty-eight years, Minister Raymond D. Sopp studied the Scriptures, not to parrot God’s Word through memorization but just to know God’s heart as He communicated through His Word. To know anyone’s heart, you must listen to their words.

Raymond wrote The Portrait of a Christian to challenge and provoke thought to those who desire a closer relationship with Christ. He wanted to paint a portrait of God’s heart through thirty-one separate commentaries—starting with the importance God placed on His Gospel and ending with a Lost Love. All of us must earnestly contend for the faith!

    I have to say that the book is impacting. It will shake you for you will question your fait.The church is experiencing a sleep. Many christians we think we are saved because once we repented, prayed and recognised Jesus like our Lord and Saviour. But salvation and the salvation prayer is preceded and followed by true repentance. That is the first step and of course required for salvation. But what if then, we still conform to the world, live like the world and like what the world likes? So, what if we think we are saved but we still do the very things that God hates? And some could say: “God is love, God cannot hate”. Please do not forget that God is above all Holy, Perfect and Justice is part of His full Perfection. Sin cannot be left without punishment. That is not justice and that is not God perfect ways either! We are saved because God Himself made all our very deserved punishment to come upon His only begotten Son Jesus Christ on the cross. He suffered the punishment that was intended for our sins.There is a narrow door, but there is a narrow way and that way is the one we Christians, denying ourselves and taking our cross we must follow. That is what takes to follow Jesus; a complete surrender to the Lord of Lords. That starts with a prayer but can go up to persecution and even death for our faith. The servant is not more than his Master.This book will let you wake-up and put you back on the right path to salvation. The path once you promised to follow when you prayed for your salvation.God bless you!
